If any areas are marked as construction zones, please stay out for your safety and the safety of the crews who are working diligently to compete these major projects by fall.

Weather/Emergency Procedures
School closings due to severe weather or other emergency reasons will be announced over KARE (11) TV and also placed on their web site at www.KARE11.com (click on School Alert). Announcements may also be made to KRWC (1360), WCCO (4), KSTP (5) and KMSP (9). In addition, an email and/or phone announcement will be made to families using the contact information received in our student database, Infinite Campus.

Generally, school will be in session if it is felt that the buses can make their routes in relative safety. Even if school is in session, parents are asked to assess their situation and determine whether or not it is safe for their children to attend school on a particular day. If a parent determines not to send their child to school due to deteriorating weather conditions, the absence will be excused.

For more detailed information on emergency closings, click here.
